Ben Salters - (AUS) @ Weltempfänger | Köln | Nordrhein-Westfalen | Deutschland

Bio:
“I firmly believe Ben Salter to be one of Australia’s best singers, and if I weren’t so goddamn competitive, one of its best songwriters as well.” – Tim Rogers (You Am I, The Temperance Union)

Ben Salter is one of Australia’s most highly regarded performers and songwriters. As well as being a founding member of Giants of Science, The Gin Club and the three-time ARIA-nominated Wilson Pickers, he is an accomplished artist in his own right. His debut solo album The Cat (2011) and follow up The Stars My Destination (2015) have established his penchant for eclectic, esoteric arrangements and sounds that take in elements of rock, pop, jazz, folk, country and beyond, whilst all maintaining a coherence and inimitable melodic style.

Salter has collaborated, written and performed with artists as diverse as Mick Thomas (Weddings, Parties, Anything), Tim Rogers (You Am I, The Temperance Union), Bernard Fanning (Powderfinger), Gareth Liddiard (The Drones) and Marlon Williams, to name a few. He has toured with acts such as Cat Power, J Mascis, Gareth Liddiard, Counting Crows, Marlon Williams and most recently Built To Spill.

Salter continues to perform relentlessly across Australia and the world, both solo and with his band, and his captivating live performances have become quasi-legendary.

He is currently in the process of recording his third album, tentatively entitled Back Yourself, due for release in 2017.

Methapher Poetry Jam #5 @ Weltempfänger | Köln | Nordrhein-Westfalen | Deutschland

LINE UP:
Kai Richarz
Dunja El Mawla
Ahmad Abou
PLAN G
Melanie Henkel
Ponderosa aka Jasmin Banu

Um eine freiere Bühne zu schaffen, als es die gängigen Poetry Slam Bühnen vermögen, bei denen die Künstler*innen durch Zeitlimits, Wettbewerb und das Verbot technischer und anderer Hilfsmittel, wie Musik, beschränkt werden, riefen die Kölner Dichterin und Rapperin Dascha und die Kölner Künstlerin Elle Visu, die Metapher Poetry Jam Reihe ins Leben.

„Metapher Poetry“ ist eine Plattform für die unterschiedlichsten Künstler*innen des gesprochenen Wortes. Hier begegnen sich Poesie, Rap, Schauspiel, Gesang und Kurzgeschichte, die eine Collage aus Worten und Sinneseindrücken gestalten.

Im Anschluss an das geplante Line-Up gibt es eine offene Bühne, bei der ihr herzlich eingeladen seid zu jammen oder eure Texte und Lieder vor interessiertem Publikum zu präsentieren.

Eintritt Frei um Spenden wird gebeten.

Jay Minor Nachmittagskonzert @ Weltempfänger

Jay Minor Nachmittagskonzert @ Weltempfänger | Köln | Nordrhein-Westfalen | Deutschland

Lust auf erstklassige Gitarrenmusik? Jay Minor (Vater von Isabell Honig / Safetyville / We used to be Tourists ) kommt uns im Weltempfänger besuchen und spielt aus seinem reichhaltigen Programm.

Der Eintritt ist frei. Um Spenden für die Künstler wird gebeten.

JAY MINOR acoustic guitar / solo fingerstyle

Sein gitarristischer Start in der Klassik, seine Singer/Songwriter Zeit, vielfältige musikalische Schwerpunkte in verschiedenen Bands (Irish Folk, Rock, Pop, Country), Ausflüge in die Welt des Musicals, sowie starke Einflüsse aus dem Fingerstyle ermöglichen es ihm, stilistisch aus dem Vollen zu schöpfen. Es ist der Mix der Bestandteile aus Folk, Blues, Ragtime, Boogie, lateimamerikanischen Rythmen und klassischen Elementen, der –gepaart mit Virtuositätund Spielfreude –sein Programm prägt. Eigene Kompositionen wechseln sich ab mit ausgefeilten Instrumental-Arrangement bekannter Songs. Dabei bricht er bisweilenaus seiner eher romantisch und balladesk angelegten Songauswahl aus und dann sind selbst Rock-Klassiker wie „Smoke on the water“ nicht mehr sicher vor nicht immer ganz ernst gemeinten Fingerstyle-Bearbeitung.————————————————————————————–

Jay Minor kann mittlerweile zurückblicken auf Gast-Auftritte bei Konzerten von Richard Smith & Julie Adams, Franco Morone, Clive Carroll, Andrea Valeri, Maneli Jamal, Sönke Meinen, im Vorprogramm von Fools Garden (im Duett mit seiner Tochter Isa), auf eine USA-Tour im Jahr 2014 und er steht seit einigen Jahren immer wieder mit dem amerikanischen Gitarristen Adam Rafferty auf der Bühne.Im Gepäck hat er sein aktuelles 2. Solo-Album „Uncovered Memories“, aus dem er einige Ausschnitte präsentieren wird.
